Gage then is Jake Phelps, "the Phelps' pubescent son who is always glued to some sort of screen." (Deadline.com)
X-FILES, THE: ALBUQUERQUE (FOX, New!) - Rocky Russo and Jeremy Sosenko are spearheading an animated spin-off of Chris Carter's much-ballyhooed series. Said effort, which has received a script and presentation commitment, "will center an office full of misfit agents who investigate X-Files cases too wacky, ridiculous or downright dopey for Mulder and Scully to bother with." Carter and Gabe Rotter will executive produce alongside the duo for Bento Box Entertainment. (TVLine.com)
